3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, lemon-gold pour with a fast-dissipating white head, only temporary, spotty lace. Really nice yeasty must aroma with a strong carbonic element, light citrus, promises a dry taste. Flavor starts off similarly, yeasty, citric dry, estery hints of peach and hawaiian punch, but also a flatter generically malty side to it that peeks through an otherwise really nice golden ale. Medium body, lightly astringent in a good way, dry, warm, very lively.

Incredibly delicious. Best saison Iíve had, maybe best Belgian wheat Iíve had (how much wheat is in here? - or does it just have wheatish spices?) Orangey tangy sweetness with a bit of funk, banana, clove, sparkly vanilla.. Light and refreshing too! So good.

Cloudy, light straw color. Modest head. Typical Belgium spicy taste upfront, but orange tang in aftertaste. "Wine" style label is an attention grabber!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
looks like cloudy pee with a thick white head. something i see way too much of, only not with a head. i really need to drink some water someday. syrupy nose that is floral with a touch of yeast. really thick and chewy, tastes sweet nectar of some light fruit.whew, not one to let warm up. gets a bit sulphury. iím not fond of the spices. all in all it ainít bad, a bit too wit-ish for me.
